As you may have heard, this past Saturday was my birthday and I turned 23! The adventure of this past year has been a wild ride, but I am so thankful for the lessons learned and the community and friendships that have resulted!
This year, I decided to celebrate in a way that only seemed fitting, by celebrating for free. So I signed up for all of the free birthday emails/clubs (mostly found here), and made a day of it!
Started out at Denny’s for some free breakfast. Split it with the lovely Jazmin who agreed to accompany me for this crazy idea and we were actually quite filled with the half breakfast!
Then I got a haircut (which was actually not free but I did get a discount!).
Shortly following the haircut I redeemed an email for a free burger at Ruby Tuesdays, which we also split and shared.
Onto Starbucks to get my free drink (Venti Green tea frappachino with chocolate shavings on top).
Then to Sephora for a free lipstick gift!
Then we finally ended at Panera for a free pastry!
While there are still many more free things to redeem in the week to come, the best gift I could have received this year was the great privilege of being surrounded by family and friends, which is absolutely FREE!

Thank you for inviting us to celebrate your birthday with you! Your family is beautiful and I can clearly see where you get your wisdom and love for others. 🙂 I love “free” birthdays. Every year I redeem Noodles and Company for lunch and Red Mango for a sweet treat! I’ll have to indulge in more for year 33.
